I decided to pick up one of these Lee Loaders just because they look neat. I was gonna get one in .45 acp, but decided I might as well get one in .30 special, because my dad has a revolver in this caliber, and shoots it probably twice a summer at most, so I have a few shells already to work with, I'll just reload these. Anybody have a link to a place to get them? Preferrably cheap....if anybody has one they dont need, and would like to sell, let me know.

I believe they sell them cheaper than Lee does

I checked out ebay, and they have some cheap prices on some old Lee Loaders. Will the old data that comes with them be ok to use?

The lee load sheet has exceptionally mild loads. No problems using the sheet as long as it is the right caliber for the ammo. No fun using the 44mag sheet for the 38 special if you get my drift.

One bit of advice. Earphones are nice for putting in the primers. I remember trying to be gentle, but every once in a while:

tap, tap, tap, tap, BOOM, "i am ok, honey" (meekly)
